Hostile Work Environment

The morning got off to a bumpy start with a power outage shortly after arriving at work. For approximately one hour the city worked through their ‘energy issues’ as we worker drones sat tight and pondered our next move. Snacks came out of hiding as in the spirit of camaraderie we shared our goodies. "Sunshine” and I decided to take advantage of our lack of productivity by enjoying a short, brisk walk outside. After the power blipped back on and the computers and phones revived, we were good to go until lunchtime. Just now as I sat hunched over my desk feverishly worki.., er, um, gazing off into space quietly contemplating the long summer afternoon, I heard horrendous, headache-inducing drilling just outside my door. Quickly closed to prevent further acute hearing loss I now ponder the efficacy of throwing ear protectors into my overstuffed tote tomorrow. My vacation days aren’t going to arrive soon enough. :)

Sheesh! It would have to be one long outage to ever make me share my snacks!

Vacation...sounds like a heavenly thing, but I wouldn't want to take my significant other...then it would be a real vacation!

TC--Our plans got scrapped yet again for a long road trip but though we are doing a short one, it will still be nice to see some fresh scenery.

Burg--I didn't bring out MY snacks mind you. No way! :)

WC--exactly, so I'm looking forward to 'time off' even though it won't really be as much of a vacation as I had hoped. *sigh*
